ICSS 001 – Being Myself, a Talk about Religion, & Spending Plans

This is it! My official Episode One! Actually recorded it twice and scrapped the first version as being way too long-winded and winding down a long and boring trail.

In this episode: (time markers are approximate)

00:00 I remove the veil and become more transparent, despite trepidation. Also discuss more about my own recovery journey and how much debt I’ve repaid.

7:29 I, uh, talk about religion. Yep. It’s the elephant in the room when it comes to 12 Step recovery programs.

10:18 I sum up what I am and what I am not in explaining my purpose for this podcast.

11:00 FINALLY, I get to start talking about a subject near and dear to my heart: spending plans. But I only get to the first two key components. I talk a lot about why it’s not just enough to track spending and why a spending plan is an essential tool for recovery from compulsive spending.

26:30 I talk briefly about the spending plan software I use (YNAB) and mention a few other options for tracking your spending.

Note: Somewhere in the podcast, I mention my old blog: Getting Out from Going Under. The blog contains hundreds of posts about working a recovery program with lots of step-by-step instructions. (I will put any new posts on this website, but that site will remain as an archive containing lots of helpful material for those in recovery.)
